Caught

"If you aren't careful, because I've seen some of you caught in that bag, you run away hating yourself and loving the man--while you're catching hell from the man. You let the man maneuver you into thinking that it's wrong to fight him when he's fighting you. He's fighting you in the morning, fighting you in the noon, fighting you at night and fighting you all in between, and you still think it's wrong to fight him back. Why? The press. The newspapers make you look wrong."
--Malcolm X
Speech at the Audubon Ballroom in Harlem (December 13, 1964)
